    Great news – the House of Representatives voted (250-175) a few minutes ago to repeal the stupid, unpopular, harmful, outdated, discriminatory policy known as “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.” This was a “stand-alone” measure, and will now go back to the Senate for a vote (hopefully) there.  What could go wrong?  Heh.

    Meanwhile, I find it fascinating, and highly revealing, that every single Virginia Democrat – Boucher, Connolly, Moran, Nye, Perriello, Scott – voted “aye” for justice and equality, while every single Virginia Republican – Eric Can’tor, Randy Forbes, Bob Goodlatte, Rob Wittman, and that self-described “moderate” Frank Wolf (heh) – voted to keep discriminating.  That really says it all.

    There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
